Kim Kardashian’s wedding photos are far and few between, but thankfully there are some good shots of her wedding taken by People Magazine.  E! TV also got the inside scoop, many of you probably saw Kim Kardashian’s wedding special. The TV special was the only place you can see the details and reception flowers, no worries there will be reruns if you missed it. What we do know is the whole theme of the wedding was black, white, and sparkle. The cream florals in the bouquets are a unique bouquet shape while the reception flowers adorn the tables in large rounded form.

Kim Kardashian is symbol of elegance and class, in fact she is known for her sense of fashion and stellar taste. If you want your wedding to be modeled after her taste it would be easy to keep within budget.  The classic American wedding theme makes it easy for others to fashion their weddings using Kim Kardashian’s style as a template . Her bouquet is a look that any bride can achieve. Simple, white, and moderately sized with ribbon tied around the stems.The cream roses are tight, not yet fully opened, a great way to achieve the shape displayed here.


The arrangements above are similar to the arrangements all over the wedding venue. They were round in form, cream rose and floral mixture (hard to tell on TV), with tall and short vases. There are ways to make this look all your own. I would suggest flowers with a rounded and fluffy texture like cream lisianthus, standard roses, and spray roses.

Always remember that being your own florist can save you money while still getting all you want and need!

How-To Make Horizontal Arrangements


Horizontal arrangements are low with a width 2 times their height and have a multitude of uses. They are commonly used for sweetheart tables or entrance statements! Many couples use similar arrangements to adorn archways or terraces for their wedding ceremony. Whatever the use this type of arrangement makes a cold statement and holds the eye’s attention.

How-To Make Vertical Arrangements

Tall vertical arrangements are tall with a small width, famous for making any table a key atmosphere setter. The more tall the more grand, as they say! Tall arrangements create a prestigious feeling. Having large arrangements is not for every couple, but you can still get the prestigious feeling by making tall floor arrangements for the ceremony and bring them to the reception. Filling space with tall arrangements is a great way to be budget savvy and elegant!

 How-To Make Triangular Arrangements

Triangular arrangements are easy to make and common. Using taller flowers  and cutting others down means you only need one type of flower, and not as many. I would say that is pretty budget worthy!

 How-To Make Rounded Arrangements

The dome like circular form is by far the most popular wedding arrangement shape. It has completely even distribution of flowers around all sides. It is inexpensive, easy to make, and a traditionally beautiful. It is the easiest because you do not need to concentrate on any angles, you can create the shape you want effortlessly.

Your Very Own Shapes: Things to Keep in mind
If the shaped above do not trigger your wedding interest, no worries, you can create pretty much anything you like. Here are some things to keep in mind in general without making a specific shape.

  • Proportions: meaning the amount of flowers and height should correlate with the size of the vase – use your judgment
  • Balance: whether you make a symmetrical or asymmetrical  arrangement remember the bottom should be big enough to support the top of the arrangement, you do not want the eye to concentrate on just one side of the arrangement (make it all interesting) and don’t over do it!
